Bulgarian Yogurt Starter
- Product Review (submitted on February 22, 2014):
- I wanted to make my own yogurt and get my family off of the over-priced chemical and sugar-laden stuff from the grocery store. The representative from Cultures for Health suggested Bulgarian yogurt for it's mild taste. Months after I bought the culture I hadn't even opened the package because the thought of trying to make yogurt was so intimidating. So many of my friends had tried and failed. I didn't have the expensive equipment to make it, and even those who I knew did weren't having much success. Again, a Cultures for Health representative walked me through the easiest way possible to make yogurt. She gave me the information and encouragement I needed to give it a try. It turned out perfect and delicious! I make a new batch every week with some of the yogurt from the previous batch, and I've been doing this without fail for 10 months. I still have my second culture in the freezer for a back-up. As for how the family likes it...it takes a little getting used to when children are accustomed to sugar sweetened yogurt, but eventually they came around and now ask for it on their cereal, with pancakes, and in smoothies.
